hi, im a 28yo mommy of a 1yo pit. hes a pretty sweet dog for the most part. he thinks hes a lap dog. you could be sitting on a step stool and he will climb his 70lb butt onto your lap. hes great with the kids most of the time. sometimes he gets a little rough but i dont think he realizes that a. he isnt a human and b. that they dont want to wrestle with him.

some of our biggest issues with him is that he has torn up our kitchen floor trying to eat shadows, chewed up our door frames(again, usually over shadows), and its almost impossible to walk him without being dragged down the street. he has very few accidents in the house and he seems to have grown out of his nippy phase for the most part. oh and he will sit and beg like annoyingly while you are trying to eat or cook. im not totally sure what to do.

thor isnt my first pit but he is my first male and the only one i have had so far that i havent been able to break. my other two that i used to have i didnt have to walk with a leash or had any of the problems i do with thor.

Welcome! The shadow chasing could be an OCD problem called Canine Stereotypy. If you google it, there is a ton of info. Do you use laser lights to play with him?
For the leash pulling, what methods have you used to teach him to walk on the leash?
